      Stayed here for two nights and it was wonderful. The room was great, and the service was fantastic. The location in Wilton Manors cannot be beat as everything is right there at your doorstep. It was a great trip and will for sure stay again when I am back in town.

      At the last minute, I decide to spend my birthday during the height of the season in Ft Lauderdale. After contacting every resort and contacts I had, i called Island Sands. Jim and Mike, the owners were incredibly nice and accommodating. They told me about a 4 unit house that was 2 blocks from island sands that had a pool and they had renovated. I stayed in the queen studio just off the pool with a great porch and table that I was able to use as my office. I decided to extend my stay for a couple of extra days and of course, these guys were accommodating. It is without reservation I highly recommend Island Sands and this sister property, not only for the great location, but the accommodations and excellent customer service of the owners!

      There wasnt nything that i disliked about Island Sands! The owners made you feel so welcome and invited. They treat us like we where family and tjere wasnt anything you couldn't ask for the they didnt accommodate us with. The inn gave you the sense of being home away from home! It was so cosy + quite and so clean!!!!!!! i will be sure to recommend friends and family to stay here at the beautiful Island Sands

      Awesome spot right on the drive
      we have stayed with Mike and Jim three times in the past three years, two of those years were 3 month stays each. This facility is so handy everything, always neat and clean and well kept up. Staff are super helpful and friendly. We are looking forward to our extended stay again next year. We highly recommend this as a premiere place to stay in Wilton Manors, walking distance to all the action. Just an Uber drive to the beach as well.

      Everythings right out your door!
      I walked to tons of gay bars and restaurants right out my door. Awesome clean modern place. Couldnt ask for anything more. The Owners and staff were Very accommodating friendly and cute too. Great pool. Unlike other places saying they ate located in the middle of everything and they wind up not being in the middle. Island Sands Has everything right outside its door! We will be back!

      A definite MUST stay if visiting Ft. Lauderdale
      I have stayed in many hotels in the past 20 years in Ft. Lauderdale. The Island Sands is, without a doubt, at the top of my list. Not only is it ideally located, but is so clean and well kept! The rooms are design perfect and spotless. The location is ideal for everything! And what really moves it to the top of the list is the service provided by the owners, Jim and Mike! They are so personable and go out of their way to make your stay ideal! I have been staying there now each time that I go to Ft. Lauderdale for the past year and each time I am just amazed that the level of service stays so high! Definitely a must if traveling to Ft. Lauderdale!

      My new "GO TO" place to stay in Fort Lauderdale area
      I cannot say enough great things about this place and the guys that own it. This was, by far, the absolute best experience I have had staying in the Fort Lauderdale area. Let me break down a few of the finer points of booking with them. The Owners - Mike and Jim were both incredibly prompt, helpful and all-around great guys to deal with. I never had to wait for a response to a question I had, and they were extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the area and where I might like to go and hangout. Again, I cannot stress the amazing level of customer service that they provide. BRAVO! The Location - Super convenient to the main strip in Wilton Manors. As I was staying there before and after a cruise, I found the location perfect for relaxing and goofing off around town without having to deal with traffic, cabs, or Ubes. The Property - GOOD GOD the rooms are nice! Far more amenities and more pleasant looking furnishing than I have ever seen in a boutique resort! Spacious, super clean, and comfortable. This will definitely be my first choice in accommodations when coming to Wilton Manors / Fort Lauderdale from now on.

      “Perfect for your stay in the "Gayborhood"”
      This lovely Inn is perfectly located in the heart of Wilton Manors. Situated just steps off of Wilton Drive you can park your car and walk to all the bars and restaurants on the Drive. Once inside the gate, it's an oasis of calm and serenity with a gorgeous heated pool and well manicured garden. My room (#2) was tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Some lovely extras such as complimentary bottled water and a glass of wine greeted me upon arrival, in addition to the free WiFi. Mike and Jim were gracious and welcoming and I feel like I found my new home away from home whenever I return to Wilton Manors.

      Island sands inn heaven
      OMGosh, this place is amazing. It is so peaceful, yet right in the midst of the gay nightlife scene of Fort Lauderdale/Wilton manors Florida. The guys JIM and Mike go far above and beyond. They are fun and sooo very hospitable. I will always stay there when I come this area. The rooms are meticulously beautiful and so comfortable. I absolutely love Island Sands Inn.

      Comfort, Hospitality, Great Staff, Location
      I have stayed at the Island Sands Inn in Wilton Manors on several occasions. Each time the rooms were lovely, the staff was accommodating, courteous and friendly. If that weren't enough, you can't beat the location, veritably around the block from all the clubs. Mike and Jim are terrific hosts.
